my lil' flutterbugs' turning 3 ...

My lil' girl Sarah's turning 3 years old on the 15 th May ... and I have had a ball in designing her birthday invites ... no the image you see is not a gift but the invite ...
... the story behind this card is ... I wanted a handmade card ... ( I do this each year) and something special ... what ever it may turn out to be ... it'll be a special something, I love doing for the lil' babe in my life ...

I found the image of this really cute butterfly ...on the net and found the lavender handmade paper at the local stationary store ...

... here started the challenge ... I couldn't find an envelope to go with the card... (uh! Navi Mumbai has a lot to catch up with neighbouring Mumbai) ...
... so the card got wrappped in see through cellophane paper ... with these lavender satin ribbons and a lil' card with the name of the guest ...

... Sarah , my lil' one gets excited at just about anything mommy does for her ... who minds if that ... "OOOOooooouuuu .... I love you mama " ... is very obviously and visibly exaggerated ...
and yes ofcourse ... which lil' girl doesn't like ribbons and bows ... this 33 yr ol' is still freaking out having fun with them ... ;)
... now all I pray for is for my babe to get over her viral ... :( and get on with all the built up excitement for the special day ... as for my excitement ... well I couldn't wait to share this lil' project of mine with all my readers :) ...

Wow!! she's not much younger than me. she turns 3 on the 15th, excellent! taurean!!!
And while some people may argue that I turn 27 on the 11th, I would love to contest that and say that I'm only really turning 7 coz I definitely don't act like anything older than that.

Gorgeous! Gorgeous!! G-O-R-GEOUS !!!
I love the whole idea, cards, cellophane an' all. Can you make out that I really like your cards? ;)
Have fun! and I'm sure Sarah is going to be fine and flitting around just like the b'fly on her cards.
p.s. I really would've thought that was the gift if you hadnt told me.

heh heh!! Thanks for the wishes. Since I'm some kind of an engineer from DU, I prefer to put some of that engineering education to good use. I use a single bulb and increase the wattage every year. This year, I'll use that same old bulb and increase the wattage to 27 watts.

A very happy b'day to your little one in advance. I may be out with a couple of cousins on a tiny getaway somewhere in the hills maybe, so registering my wishes in advance.
